I've been asked to make a birthday cake for a man who's turning 60. His wife only told me he loves to turkey hunt. She didn't care what I did on the cake other than that it pertains to turkey hunting. I know absolutely nothing about turkey hunting! When I search Hunting themes, I come up with deer and duck hunting. Does anyone have any ideas to get my creative juices flowing? Thank you for any help you can give!

Maybe a scared turkey with feathers flying all over the cake similar to this :

You could do a cake with a profile of a hunter on it carrying a sack over his shoulder with turkey feathers and legs poking out of the top OR a round layer cake with the back side of a turkey (feathers and legs) coming out of the side of the cake and the head sticking out the other side or the top OR do a cake with the hunter standing on top and the feathers and legs popping out of the top of the cake (kinda like those babybutt cakes). Anyway, hope the ideas help!

Wow, thanks for all those ideas! They're all so clever it'll be hard to decide on one! Thank you!!

I made a turkey hunt theme cake, using shotgun shell molds from Earlene Moore's site. I was happy with the way it turned out.

Good luck on whatever you decide to do.

milkmaid42, I love your cake!! I'm not sure I have the skill to pull of painting those feathers. Never have worked with wafer paper. I checked out Earlene Moore's site and I see that the shotgun shells are not actually a mold, but several molds and steps, again - don't know if I have the skill level to pull it off. Thanks for the link to a great site, though!

I while back I saw a cake that had a small figure of a turkey cutting off a man's head. And, it had "you want a piece of me?" written on the top of the cake. I thought it was really funny how the decorator turned things around.

Haha!!! Those ideas are hilarious! My husband would love them. He has a "warped" sense of humor! Thanks for those!
